This policy describes how OneHE will collect and use personal information about you when you use our website. For the purpose of data protection legislation (which includes the Data Protection Act 1998 or, from the date it comes into force, the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679)) (the ‘GDPR‘)), OneHE is the ‘data controller.’ This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. We are required under data protection legislation to notify you of the information contained in this policy.
Who we are
OneHE is a company limited by guarantee incorporated in England and Wales under company number 11223758 with its registered office at Quad East, Lord Mayor’s Walk, York, YO31 7EX, United Kingdom. We can also be contacted at email@example.com.
Information we may collect from you
We may collect and process the following data about you:
What we may use your data for
We may sometimes be obliged to disclose your personal information by law such as by a regulator with appropriate power, or court order. In addition, information held by or for public bodies can be subject to freedom of information requests.
Where we store your personal data
How we will protect your personal information
We are committed to holding your personal information provided to us securely.
Where personal information is held electronically, it is held on a computer system that is owned and controlled by the OneHE or such other third party appointed by OneHE.
All the information that you provide to us will be transmitted to and stored on our secure servers or the servers of such other third party who we may appoint from time to time to store information.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our online service, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.
Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
How long we will retain your data for
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for (see ‘What we may use your data for‘). To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider:
OneHE will ensure that our suppliers and selected third parties with whom we share your personal information in accordance with this policywill delete your personal information when they no longer require it.
Links to other sites
Our site may, from time to time, contain links to other websites. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
Your duty to inform us of changes
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your relationship with us.
Your rights in connection with personal information
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
If you want to review, verify, correct, or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact the support team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
What we may need from you: we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
You have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner (http://www.ico.gov.uk/) if you have any concerns in respect of the handling of your personal information by OneHE.
